Electric cooperatives, like NHEC, played an essential role in bringing electricity to rural areas in the late 1930s. The same need exists now with high-speed internet access. Today, NHEC provides electric distribution service to 86,000 members, located in 118 communities across New Hampshire. Just as it brought electricity to rural New Hampshire over 80 years ago, NHEC is uniquely positioned to help bring high-speed internet to those same communities today. NHEC is committed to ensuring our members have access to this essential service.
